HONOLULU--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Mokulele Airlines announced today that it has implemented an interline ticketing agreement with Continental Airlines. The agreement allows passengers to conveniently book and ticket destinations in Hawaii beyond Continental’s Honolulu gateway in one easy transaction. From Honolulu, Mokulele offers service to Kahului, Maui; Kona and Hilo (effective May 1) on the Big Island; Lihue, Kauai; and Molokai/Hoolehua, Molokai. All of these destinations can now be booked in Continental’s reservations system as connections to/from Continental’s mainland service and Continental Micronesia’s international service in Honolulu.

“This agreement makes ‘one stop shopping’ possible for those traveling from the mainland to points throughout the islands,” said Scott Durgin, interim CEO of Mokulele Airlines. “When booking with Continental, passengers can view Mokulele’s inter-island flight schedules and purchase tickets to their final destination in Hawaii in one simple transaction.”

The interline agreement also covers checked luggage, meaning mainland passengers connecting in Honolulu to a Mokulele destination will not need to claim and recheck their bags in Honolulu.

Continental Airlines is the world’s fifth largest airline. Continental, together with Continental Express and Continental Connection, has more than 2,750 daily departures throughout the Americas, Europe and Asia, serving 133 domestic and 132 international destinations. More than 750 additional points are served via current alliance partners. With more than 43,000 employees, Continental has hubs serving New York, Houston, Cleveland and Guam, and together with its regional partners, carries approximately 67 million passengers per year.

Mokulele Airlines was founded in 1998 as Mokulele Flight Service Inc. The airline operates scheduled U.S. carrier service, tour flights and inter-island cargo service. Mokulele Airlines currently has a fleet of three, 70-seat Embraer 170 jets offering all-leather seating in both first and economy class and seven 208B Cessna Grand Caravans. The airline operates 64 daily departures to seven cities in Hawaii. Mokulele Airlines markets and sells tickets directly to passengers via its website www.mokuleleairlines.com and through its Honolulu reservations center at 808-426-7070.
